  • I think the labels here are misleading for people not reading, carefully, the article. Just saying "ISO 100" is not what it seems here, right? (I'm addressing the dpreview folks here.) Worth fixing...

  • new post to an old thread: I just did some real world tests on upscaling, seen here: http://wmjaeger.com/William_Jaeger_Photographs/Upscaling.html
  • Even if you shoot at f/4 or f/8, focusing and viewing can be easier/better with the f/2.8 option...in my brief experience with the Olympus f/2.0 90mm macro at least.

  • OK...I get it. I wasn't being a snob (I hope) but missed the point that the new lens might seem special or better than other 50mm primes out there. Let's hope they review the heck out of it and...

  • But...it doesn't really need a review, does it? A great lens, and cheap, sure...

  • I admire dpreview overall, but doesn't this seem small potatoes compared to the really interesting new lenses out there (some fast wide zooms, some terrific fast primes, etc.)? I mean, you complain...

  • I like the review...and wish there was more (lots more) of this hard core real world stuff on dpreview. Not to mention faster camera reviews.

  • Just to clarify on the sharpness--I've not measured it, but my 24mm Zuiko feels sharper on the A7r, and even the 14-24mm Nikon has more apparent snap (sharpness/contrast). It's not Zeiss quality,...

  • I own this. Huge (!) distortion, corrected well in jpgs. Focuses fast and quiet. Not especially small for an f/2, but light. No image stabilization. In all, very sharp and therefore competent but...

  • Weird, but it seems ugly to me! But the point is good--some of us want our cameras to look great, too. Yes!

  • These are not actually photographs, but photographic contact prints of engravings. (Some might call them photograms.) And they are direct positives on metal, so there is no negative. The dates are...

  • right on...and ditto for Nikon.

  • The question does linger--is a $900 camera, without a lens, entry level? The Rebel line seems to beg for a true entry level--in terms of price--without having to buy a 2 or 3 year old model. No?

  • Commented on Nikon D750 Review preview

    The page of the flare issue is unusually fair and intelligent. Kudos! And thanks!

  • Commented on Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview

    A pretty careful avoidance of Nikon (or Sony) comparisons, overall. Too bad. Head-to-head comparisons are really (!) helpful. Does this hold up next to a D750? When, where, under what shooting...

  • the other replies are right on...and now we know it was a dud! ha.

  • You can do whatever you want in English...partly why it's such a suggestive and invasive language. There is a "grammar" that most of us follow, but when we break the rules, it's potentially...
